Winter Hike in September

What makes this a winter hike? I don't have to carry water for the dogs. Today Skadi didn't even look at the water I gave her on top of Jupiter Peak and Loki took a sip only because I told him to.
So we went to Jupiter to explore the snow conditions and also take a few shots into Big Cotonwood and get a sense of where they are at with their snow cover.
Here are the pictures (click to enlarge):

Brock has moved in to PC from Michigan two weeks or so
ago and he is looking to make this place his permanent
residence. I had the honor of guiding him on his first
oxygen-less yet successfull summit bid on
Jupiter Peak today. Great job Brock!
